Hello I am new to SparkPeople. I am happily married to the most terrific husband. We are in our mid fifties and loving life.
We live in the country and much prefer country living to the city. We have a yellow lab (Charley) and 3 horses. I used to show but now we like to go trail riding, and now driving our buggy. I love being outside and summer and fall are my favourite seasons.
I am turning 56 on May 15th and I feel wonderful, exercising is keeping me young. I just love the way that I feel, I have tons of energy and love to be able wear my jeans and feel good in them again.

Fitness Minutes: 7,618

My Goals:
My goal is to get to 125 by my 56th birthday May 15th, and then to maintain my weight.
Well I did not make my goal of 125 by May 15th. A little dissapointed in myself but I will keep at it and maybe get there by July 1st.
Well July 1st has come and gone and I still have not met my goal, I will keep chasing it till I get it. NEVER give up!!!

Eat healthier and keep up my exercise routine permantly to have a healthier lifestyle. Enjoy my family and friends.

My Program:
I use Jari Love DVDs 3 times a week and use 5- 8lb dumbells, and I use Jillian Michaels DVDs 5 times a week. I also have an abb workout I do 3-5 times a week. I also walk 2-3 miles a day outside when the weather is good with my dog. When the weather is not nice I do walking in the house.

Personal Information:
We live on an acerage in SE Alberta Canada. We have lived here since 1998. We bought 10 acres and over the years have developed it to a point where we really like it but always want to do more.
I enjoy working in my yard riding my horses and now driving our wagon.

Other Information:
I used to show reining horses for several years very competively and then it got to a point where I wasn't having fun anymore even when I won my classes. That was when I decided to quit showing and just ride for the fun and thats what we are doing now. I was up to 6 horses at one time to many for 1 person to ride and fund. Now we are down to 2 that we can manage and still have fun and not so much work.

    Wow, that is wonderful! So, both of you are being trained for search and rescue? I think that is awesome! Charlie must be a terrific dog! I think it is amazing that people and their dogs can do this. Good luck to both of you. You will do such good for so many people! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for your concern about us! Actually, we were not at home when all of this happened! We were on a camping trip in southern Oklahoma, at the Winstar Casino. My neighbor said all we got was a bit of rain, not scary here at all.

    The tornado was actually spotted in Joshua, which is north of Cleburne, and our house is about 4 miles south of Cleburne, so that is good! I feel sorry for all of those who had so much damage, though. My older daughter lives in Arlington where there was severe damage to many homes, but that was just south of her!

    Hope that you are having a great Spring..............Hope that you have a Happy Easter! emoticon
